Question about Motherboards

3 Answers

Simply upgrade to more memory

Mainboard P4 model L4S8A2
I wish to buy more memory.
I have a puny PC333 512MB module right now.
This motherboard accepts up to 3, 1 Gb each, 184 pin slots modules.
The manual says DDR SDRAM with a bus at 133MHz will double the transfert rate to 2.7GBps. So :
- is true ?
- What brand of memory module do you suggest ?
- Other considerations ???
Many thanks !

Your board and computer are quite old and so I would recoment buying by price. Try either:  newegg. com           of        Tiger.com  both of which stand by the products they sell. I also suggest that you not purchase more than two 1gb chips as I believe SDRAM doubles the transfer rate only in pairs. Good luck , Corentint

Hello you can find drivers and the manual here:

http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=P4P800%20SE&p=1&s=15

You just have to select your windows system.

Any file from here needs to be unziped, before you install the driver.

When upgrading the bios you have to make sure, its the right mainboard bios file.

Open the case and look for the mainboard number.

Flashing the bios with a wrong one, will destroy the mainboard !!!!


Good luck

Tried to upgrade memory on Asrock K8NF4G-SATA2 to 2 X 1Gb modules. With one module fitted PC starts and shows 1Gb. With 2 fitted it will not start. Tried both modules one at a time in slot 0 and board will...


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/NVIDIA/K8NF4G-SATA2/

I think the second slot for the ram might have a defect.

The problem could also be a bios setting or an update.

The bios can be upgraded while the system is running.

If you are in doubt upgrading the bios let a expert do this for you.

Remember that dust can make a bad connection and do not touch the contact points with your fingers.

Try to buy a can with compressed air and blow the ram slot out for dust.

The ram modules must sometimes be at equal size (mhz) in order to the mainboard can boot with the ram.

Good luck

WHAT GB RAM SOPORT IN DIVES


Hello,

The Gigabyte mainboard you have uses DDR333, PC2700 RAM memory.
Your model GA-81845GVM-RZ has 2-slots and each slot can have up to a 1GB of memory, therefore you can have 2GB total RAM memory on this model mainboard.

I recommend mainstream, reliable pair of 1gb each memory modules such as Crucial.

Good Luck

I have intel d845gvs1 motherboard with P4 2.4 ghz, Currently have 2 ram (512mb & 256 mb) how much further can i upgrade the ram, 1GB or 2GB also is the current combination of ram is right?


"Supports up to 2 GB of system memory with DIMMs utilizing 512 Mbit
technology DRAM devices"-intel

you can use 2 sticks of 1 gig apiece to get to 2 gigs of total memory, but you have to make sure that the ram sticks use "512Mbit " technology.

the 512Mbit technology refers to the arrangement of memory chips on the ram cards. a card which uses 64Mx8 (8 seperate memory chips of 64M apiece) would be appropriate.

"Nearly all motherboards only recognize 1 GB modules if they are low density 64M×8 modules. If high density 128M×4 1 GB modules are used, they most likely will not work."-wikipedia"

Memory +cpu upgrade


No to the cpu you selected. Board would not support that cpu. The RAM you selected would probably work but for how long I couldn't say. With prices pretty low right now it would probably be better to purchase a new motherboard, cpu, & RAM. Hope this helps.
